“The gallery is a wonderful space to showcase and highlight the humanities and the arts and culture here at Maryland. For me, here, it’s like a safe space for the arts. We can invite people in. Anyone from Undergrads to kindergartners to the elderly, they’re in here, looking at shows. That’s why I love it.” said Madeline Gent, a graduate assistant of the Art Gallery.
